McNett, the industry leader in the Care and Repair category announces the purchase of the entire Gear Aid product line from Adventure Medical Kits.

These field-use kits are designed to come to the rescue when things go wrong in the field. They include everything from repair tapes and patches, to sewing supplies, industry specific fabrics, replacement buckles, Seam Grip and excellent expert field repair instructions. These kits are essential insurance against the inevitable trip ruining mishaps that happen to everyone in the field.

This is a excellent move for both companies, it’s a natural line extension for McNett, and allows Adventure Medical Kits to focus on its core focus of first aid and medical kits.

“This deal was a match made in heaven,” George Farkas, McNett Product and Marketing Manager stated. “McNett already has the most extensive care and repair product line in the industry and the addition of the Gear Aid kits tremendously broadens our field repair kit line.”

McNett is currently shipping the 2009 Gear Aid line and is working on improvements to the kits, kit contents and instructions for launch in January 2010.

”We’re working now on significant refinements to every aspect of the kits and are looking forward to introducing the complete new line at the Outdoor Retailer Winter Market in January,” said Farkas. “Utmost in our minds is to make sure every component is top quality to ensure a terrific consumer experience. “

The new Gear Aid line is a perfect compliment to the already popular collection of McNett products. The newest addition to the ReviveX line, ReviveX Air Dry Water Repellent, is a high performance formula designed to create instant water repellency on outerwear, footwear and gear. Ideal for all types of breathable garments including those made with GORE-TEX® fabric, eVent and other breathable membranes.

In the angling category, McNett’s new Aquaseal UV Ultraviolet Cure Adhesive is the ultimate wader repair product for instant, stream-side sealing. Aquaseal UV cures in seconds when exposed to the sun, allowing anglers to be back on the river in no time.

 The new line of Gear Aid products will begin shipping in January 2010 and the current lineup of McNett product is available online at McNett.com

McNett Brands and Trademarks are the most recognized and trusted products in their categories. ReviveX®, Aquaseal®, Seam Grip®, Freesole® and Aquamira® brands are available in over 70 countries.
